Northern Windows Measures your Roof and Walls … from the Sky!

Northern Windows Measures your Roof and Walls … from the Sky!

Roofing and siding companies once had to spend hours with ladders and tape measures to figure out the size of a job. Now companies like Northern Windows, Siding, Roofing and Insulation can get the precise dimensions of your walls and roof: the area of each section, the pitch, the length of ridges and eaves, from the sky, using software developed by EagleView Technologies. EagleView was just awarded a U.S. patent on its method to derive roof measurements from aerial photos, an accomplishment that gives the Seattle company an edge over software competitors.

We use EagleView to accurately measure and create estimates for our clients’ siding, windows and roofing. Read more about the Eagleview technology here.

Eagleview,jpg“We put your address into EagleView’s website, the company pulls existing aerial photos of that property. The software uses this to generate a model of the roof surface, extrapolating measurements and slopes from images taken at different angles. Then a technician reviews the renderings and photos and emails us a report,” says Michael Furman, owner of Northern Windows, Siding, Roofing and Insulation.

In recent years, aerial and satellite photos have become abundant and detailed enough to show most U.S. buildings from several angles, and companies have emerged to turn those images into useful renderings. “Anything that will help with accuracy is a great idea. It gives us a high resolution aerial image of the customer’s home. It also includes a length diagram showing color-coded details and total line lengths for ridges, hips, valleys, rakes, eaves, flashing and step flashing. Besides roofing, we can also order a wall report from EagleView for accurate measurements for siding jobs. It allows us to be spot on when we order material for our jobs, and more precise with every estimate to give our clients,” says Mr. Furman.

EagleView puts together detailed roof renderings using aerial photos from public sources, such as county land records, or databases. Its software matches up edges, colors, and shapes to create a three-dimensional image of the roof. “This method is more precise and less cumbersome for roofers and siders than the old-fashioned way. Furman says. “We’re always looking for innovative ways to save our clients time, energy and money. EagleView has been a great asset to our business and to our customers.”

Ice Dam Orange County NY

Ice Dam Orange County NY

What is an Ice Dam?
An ice dam is a ridge of ice that forms at the edge of a roof and prevents melting snow (water) from draining off the roof. The water that backs up behind the dam can leak into a home and cause damage to walls, ceilings, insulation, and other areas. Figure 1 shows a cross section of a home with an ice dam.Figure-1What causes ice dams?

There is a complex interaction among the amount of heat loss from a house, snow cover, and outside temperatures that leads to ice dam formation. For ice dams to form there must be snow on the roof, and, at the same time, higher portions of the roof’s outside surface must be above 32°F while lower surfaces are below 32°F. For a portion of the roof to be below 32°F, outside temperatures must also be below 32°F. When we say temperatures above or below 32°F, we are talking about average temperature over sustained periods of time.

The snow on a roof surface that is above 32°F will melt. As water flows down the roof it reaches the portion of the roof that is below 32°F and freezes. Voila!-an ice dam.

The dam grows as it is fed by the melting snow above it, but it will limit itself to the portions of the roof that are on the average below 32°F. So the water above backs up behind the ice dam and remains a liquid. This water finds cracks and openings in the exterior roof covering and flows into the attic space. From the attic it could flow into exterior walls or through the ceiling insulation and stain the ceiling finish.
Preventing and dealing with ice dams

In all communities, it is possible to find homes that do not have ice dams. Ice dams can be prevented by controlling the heat loss from the home.

Immediate action:

Remove snow from the roof. This eliminates one of the ingredients necessary for the formation of an ice dam. A “roof rake” and push broom can be used to remove snow, but may damage the roofing materials. In an emergency situation where water is flowing into the house structure, making channels through the ice dam allows the water behind the dam to drain off the roof. Hosing with tap water on a warm day will do this job. Work upward from the lower edge of the dam. The channel will become ineffective within days and is only a temporary solution to ice dam damage.

Long-term action:

First, make the ceiling air tight so no warm, moist air can flow from the house into the attic space. After sealing air leakage paths between the house and attic space, consider increasing the ceiling/roof insulation to cut down on heat loss by conduction. Both of these actions will increase the snow load that your roof has to carry because it will no longer melt. Can your roof carry the additional load? If it is built to current codes, there should not be a structural problem. Roofs, like the rest of the home, should have been designed to withstand expected snow loads. In NY, plans showing design details to meet expected snow loads are usually required to receive a building permit.
